My aunt emailed me about the piece and then the very lovely Margaret Moore had a link to the video. ABC's Nightline (the US equivalent of the BBC's Newsnight) did a piece on Harlequin.
The CEO, Donna Hayes, was brilliant but then having met her, I wouldn't expect anything less. If you want a role model for a highly successful woman, look no further.
Harlequin is doing very well out of the recession and the US media is just starting to realise (the deadpan readings of the various book not withstanding)
I think the presenter was surprised when Ms Hayes dismissed the need for men as a target audience. Harlequin Enterprise is focussed on women's fiction. It sees no need to change.
I was pleased to see historical mentioned.
Go Harlequin! Escapist Reading is great fun!
